They take the time to get it right, they are very affordable, and well connected within the community. We run all our accounting through them.

Two years ago we switched our accounting and payroll over to the Calas Group and it was one of the smartest decisions we have ever made. Brian and his team have wrapped their arms around us and given us 5 star service. After Brian assessed our financial condition he assisted us in getting a large Line of Credit with a local Bank in Miami that he has a tremendous working relationship with, at a very low interest rate. Than he guided us through some very difficult times with the IRS. In addition, our books are now professionally maintained by Jill Rubin, who is a superstar. Jill has reorginized our Chart of Accounts in a more user friendly format and has trained me on how to generate reports in Quickbooks that I can use to manage my small Law Firm. I could not be any happier with Brian, Jill and the team at Calas Group and highly recommend their services. More...

I often interact with Jill who services my client. She is always incredibly responsive to assist me in an expedited manner. Truly a pleasure to work with.

Brian and his team did a great job with my return, finding a ton of credits and exemptions that TurboTax missed and turning an "amount owed" into an "amount received". He also went the extra step in identifying some issues with our witholdings and even gave my wife and I W4s to turn in to HR. Responsive, capable, and reasonably priced - you owe it to yourself to give them a shot. More...

Best tax guys around. I use George, he's sometimes hard to get in touch with but worthy the wait. If your military can't beat the price less you find someone who will do it for free.  With multiple incomes and self-employment he's cheaper than anyone around by far. Also assisted me with setting up corp over seas. A nice tool to know. More...

Q&As

Bookkeeping, Payroll, Tax preparation, Business Valuations, Business Financial Planning, IRS representation and Audits - Reviews - Compilations.

Many small businesses owners don't realize that a staggering 80 percent of U.S. businesses fail within the first 18 months. Typically, one of the main causes is poor financial management.

Despite these dire consequences, many business owners go it alone when it comes to managing their money. A recent report found that 53 percent of small business owners don’t use an accountant at all. And even more shocking, 27 percent of these respondents simply use pen and paper to keep track of their finances.

While we shouldn’t conclude that these businesses are worse off for not having an accountant, we can’t underestimate the breadth of knowledge and experience an accountant can provide.

Most people don’t service their cars at home. Instead, they bring them to a professional mechanic who can keep things running smoothly and spot potential issues. Small businesses need just the same attention from a professional.

Accountants do more than tax filing. They can take a comprehensive assessment of your finances and create a forecast through the year to keep your business at a healthy, prosperous state.

We are problem solvers. Our advice is based on over 30+ years of experience.

Face-to-face contact. We have restricted face-to-face contact with customers and/or vendors. The sales staff will conduct business via phone or electronic communication (e-mail/text). As a company that prides itself on building relationships, our Tax Preparers, Staff Accountants, Bookkeepers will be a difficult change. However, face-to-face meetings pose a greater risk for everyone involved. If you need to conduct critical business that requires engagement with a member of our team in person, please make sure and call for an appointment to ensure access to that employee's facility and availability. As a precaution, we will safeguard an area for you to meet with that employee.
Staff availability. Although we will continue to conduct business, we will operate with limited on-site staff to mitigate the coronavirus's exposure and spread. Team members that can work remotely will be asked to do so and be available via phone or e-mail if you need to speak with them.
Visitors. We are restricting all non-essential visits to our offices/facilities. For people who have to visit our sites, we're asking you to complete a personal health check before coming to our facility by answering the following two questions:
• Do you have symptoms of COVID-19: fever, cough, and shortness of breath?
• Have you had close personal contact with anyone within the last 14 days who have tested positive for COVID-19?
For those that answer yes to any of the above, we ask that they not come to our facilities.

Services

Bookkeeping is the recording of day-to-day financial transactions, and is part of the process of accounting in business. Transactions include purchases, sales, receipts, and payments by an individual person or an organization/corporation.

Payroll processing refers to the administration of employees’ financial records including salaries, wages, bonuses, deductions, and net pay.

Payroll might seem like a simple, straightforward process. You just need to calculate your employees’ hours and send out their paychecks, right?

In reality, there’s a lot more to it. From payroll taxes and wage policies to remitting to the IRS, the process is not as simple as it seems. Things can quickly get complicated. To ensure accuracy, the payroll process can’t be rushed.

Tax preparation is the process of preparing tax returns, often income tax returns - Corporation and/or Individual. United States income tax laws are considered to be complicated, many taxpayers seek outside assistance with taxes (59.2% of individual tax returns in 2007 were filed by paid preparers).

CPA firms offer a variety of services to help small businesses with financial reporting requirements. Audits, reviews, and compilations can help your business secure a loan, satisfy regulatory rules, or entice new investors.

Audit

If you need to prove to another party that your financial statements are accurate, an audit is the way to go. During audits, CPAs analyze your accounting records and study the documentation for your transactions. After finishing this research, the CPA issues an opinion. If he likes what he sees, he’ll give you an unqualified opinion. This means that he believes that your financial statements comply with generally accepted accounting principles in all material respects.

Review

A financial review is similar to an audit, but not quite as rigorous. When conducting a review, the CPA expresses limited assurance about your financial statements. Rather than digging through documentation, the CPA performs basic analytical procedures to double-check that the financial statements make sense. The best opinion you can get from a review is simply that the CPA is not aware of any material departures from GAAP.

Compilation

During an audit or a review, you prepare your financial statements and your CPA reviews and expresses an opinion about them. During a compilation, your CPA assists you in preparing the financial statements but doesn’t opine on their quality or accuracy.

Business valuation is a process and a set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner's interest in a business. Valuation is used by financial market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive to effect a sale of a business.
